could just as easily happen again if you don't take precautions.
I'ld like to see some measures made for those whose account value is too small to justify the cost of a Yubikey.  

I'd like to see Mt Gox and other bitcoin exchanges offer the free two-factor authentication, Google Authenticator.

The following Bitcoin exchanges currently do offer optional two-factor authentication

BitFloor
Camp BX
Crypto X Change
Mercado Bitcoin
Mt Gox

I think this is a nice optional layer of security to offer for your clients. The 3 methods offered are:

Google Authenticator
SMS Text Message
Yubikey

Of the 3 methods listed above, personally, I prefer Google Authenticator

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Authenticator

I don't like the yubikey because I don't want another piece of hardware.
SMS text message is OK, but I use a prepaid cellphone and have to pay for every text I receive. Being somewhat of a tightwad, I don't like that.

Google Authenticator works on my iPod touch and it's free.

If the cost is free even small accounts can afford to be secure. While it's probably best to just make this an optional level of security, Bitcoin exchanges could make it mandatory for accounts above a certain BTC or fiat currency balance.

It was a poor password choice.

Maybe so,but I use something similar with banks & had no problems ever.............putting on flame retardent suit  Grin

It just dawned on me that Deepbit always sends an email with a confirm link when changing info or withdrawing coins,MTgox needs something similar.

i use piece of paper and password kfdJO$3jO:CXZMnfkcxM$L#@:!

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

Of course people can do things to prevent it, but sometimes it takes getting hacked to knock some common sense into them. Smiley

Well,with nothing backing BTC like the dollar or other fiat (police or fed gov think BTC is "play" money & don't care),you have no recourse in getting your coins or cash back.Its a hackers paradise (they can suffer no conciqences)& will continue to be so.Illegal activities are too easy to get away with in the make believe land of BTC.

If the exchanges were to make it mandatory for PW's to be ________________(insert digit amount) or something to that effect,maybe it would make it harder for hackers.Most folks aren't cryoto phreaks or super software savvy like alot of you on this forum.Sorry for me/most of us "outsiders" being so ignorant..............

Hell,even exchanges are getting hacked for very large amounts & you'll never see a penny recovered.Will the local gov come & help,yeah right.

Chalk it up to experience Huh You bet,I don't trust anyone or anyplace anymore..............My coins stay on my PC & if I do go to trade,it's only long enough for that trade............

Reminds me, it's about time that I rotated my main passwords. I'm starting to use LastPass more with generated passwords, but the master password for LastPass is a few years old at this point. Although it is more than 20 characters with caps and numbers, it's still based on a phrase and doesn't have symbols. I'll need to come up with a suitable replacement.

My money on MT.Gox was transferred out ~2k USD on the 31th of may.

And there are no logins that match the withdraw. Did you check if
the logins to your account match the withdraws before you beat yourself up
about your password?
